Valentine’s Day and I am remembering
Sitting by the fire on the shore
The Lake so quiet except for gentle
Lapping at the rocky shore.
You and I so in love
Your arm around my shoulder
How wonderful we made memories
I could enjoy now that I am much older.
Now that you are gone….
Tears sting my eyes but you were so sweet
And when we married
My life was complete
For I loved you more than life.
I remember walking in snow,
Your hand completely covering mine
To keep mine from the getting cold.
We were enraptured.
There could never be another for me
God chose you especially for me
A precious gift from up above
And now you dwell in His sweet Love
Still watching over me.
At least I have Sweet memories
Of you and youth and Love.
Even though I cannot see
You dwelling now above.
I look forward to meeting you by the gate
When I am enfolded in God’s love and Grace
To dwell with you once more.
In the clouds forever up above.
